Ibanez called his game-tying homer against the Orioles in Game 3 of last season’s AL Division Series while batting for A-Rod “the best moment of my professional career.”

Then he crushed the game-winning home run in the 12th inning.

Adam Greenberg finally gets his at-bat

(US Presswire)

Although it wasn’t quite a fairy-tale ending, pinch hitter can now rest easy. He’s gotten his one official major-league at-bat.

Tuesday night, Greenberg stepped iager.Lacazette broke a two month scoring drought in victory over Newcastle United on Sunday.He said: “He (Arteta) is, how can I say, he demands a lot of things.”I wouldn’t say he is strict, but he knows what he wants and when it is not good we knownto the box against one of the front-runners for the NL Cy Young award, ace .y in the transfer market.Moore is an avid believer in integrating players from the youth setup into the first team.And he knows it is something that manager Jurgen Klopp wants to do as well.Moore thinks that unearthing gems in such a way can save hun

Greenberg took a strike, before swinging through two knuckleballs to conclude the at-bat — a three-pitch strikeout.

Still, Greenberg had an ear-to-ear smile as he entered the dugout. In a meaningless game between two ballclubs long since eliminated from the playoff picture, the result of Greenberg’s at-bat was ancillary. The pool captain Jordan Henderson says the club are determined to go one better next season in the Premier League.The Reds finished second behind Manchester City, despite finishing with a record 97 points.Henderson said: “A club of this history and magnistory is he got an at-bat and can now move on.

Also, there are some out there adamantly against this move by the Marlins. Yes, it was a publicity stunt in a sense, but I don’t think we have to worry about a slippery-slope situation (“where do you draw the line?”) because Greenberg’s situation was unique. He only saw one big-league pitch in his life and it hit him in the head. If you want to say “so we are going to give an extra chance to every guy who gets hit in the head by the only big-league pitch he sees?” My answer would be “why the hell not?” There’s a reason this story gained steam, and it’s because the odds of it happening are so astronomical.

Here is Greenberg’s mother reacting to his at-bat:
